The yacht also has a secret passage to allow the owner to access a second motor boat.  This can be used as an escape in case of emergency. The yacht is also outfitted with two surgery rooms and a special operation room. The luxury yacht was once equipped with a ground-to-air missile system.  This system is not going to be auctioned.

Legally, the yacht now belongs to the incumbent government of Iraq. Organizers of the auction say that it would be naïve for them to think that the auction market has not been affected with the global credit crisis / crunch.
